I chatted on-line with a WGBH rep this morning (Jan 10) and was told the 
power increase is expected to take place within "the next month or so".

>> Dear Viewer,
>> I’m writing with good news. WGBH’s petition to increase its broadcasting frequency strength was approved by the Federal Communication Commission.
>> The power of our transmitter will be increased from 6.9kW to 34.5 kW. We expect this increase to result in significant improvements to reception quality. Getting the right hardware, testing and installation brings us to approximately first week of January – however it is very possible it will be completed sooner.
>> Most importantly, I send this message with deep gratitude. Without you and the 1,200+ other viewers who took the time to directly provide their feedback to us, this petition would not have been approved.
>> Thank you for your generous support of WGBH, and thank you for allowing us to share our excitement with you. I hope this boost will allow you to enjoy all of the shows with improved HD quality!
>> If you are still unable to receive either channel, please get in touch with the Audience & Member Services team at info@WGBH.org or (617) 300 3300.
>> P.S. We’ll be sure to keep you updated as our installation timetable becomes clearer
>> Best,
